The original and creativity of paper: The paper compared the performance of artificial neural networks (ANN) and support vector machines (SVM) for ground water level prediction.
Time-series forecasting models for the short-term ground water level fluctuation in a coastal aquifer using ANN and SVM have developed. Moreover, the performances of input structures and lead times have been compared and the results were show in Table 1.
Table 1 Performance of ANN and SVM
Contribution: This study introduced support vector machine model which can be an option for the researchers who work on prediction and classification problem.
